Deeply intimate and reflective, Alice Skye explains that ‘Friends with Feelings’ is a collection of songs taken from journal entries she has written over the years. “There are different landscapes and times in my life that these songs are a product of,” she said.
“The title track was written after being told by someone to think of my emotions as colours. I’m deeply preoccupied with identity, it’s something that gives me stability – understanding my culture and who I am. This whole album for me is a reminder of where I was, where I’ve been and where I’m still going.”
Alice Skye first caught national attention back in 2015 with her debut single You Are The Mountains. Recorded at the CAAMA Music studios in Alice Springs as one of 8 winners of the Alukura Songwriting Competition, late 2015 saw Alice chosen as finalist in the Triple J Unearthed NIMA competition and one of the 5 new Indigenous artists you need to hear. Later in 2016 Alice signed with the legendary CAAMA record label and along with Sound Engineer Rohan Carmody and Producer Matt Byrnes, krafted her stunning debut album ‘Friends With Feelings’.
